  • SALT LAKE SHOWS OFF FOR OLYMPIC OFFICIALS

         The Olympic site-inspection team visited Salt Lake City to
    examine the state's sports facilities.  The site-team is helping
    the IOC "narrow the list of nine cities competing for the 2002
    Winter Games to four by next January."  They were greeted by more
    than 100 local dignitaries at the Delta Center, complete with a
    letter from President Clinton. In addition to the ski areas, the
    three day inspection was to include visits to the Salt Palace,
    Abravanel Hall, and the site of the athletes' village at the
    University of Utah.  Salt Lake is competing for the 2002 Games
    with:  Quebec City, Canada; Tarvisio, Italy; Sion, Switzerland;
    Jaca, Spain; Graz, Austria; Poprad-Tatry, Slovakia; Ostersund,
    Sweden; and Sochi, Russia (AP, DENVER POST, 9/20)
